Live Through This: rock nyc’s Top Concert Picks For The Week Of June 3rd, 2019

comic by Shari Saffioti

 

Max’s Kansas City, along with CBGB’s, was a legendary nightclub where first the Andy Warhol scene thrived, and then, punk came to stay. O caught Johnny Thunders there once, Sid Vicious as well. From 1965 to 1981, the Park Avenue bar, restaurant, and concert venue, was as cool a hang as anyone has ever been. In 1975 Peter Crowley took over booking and the place never looked back for an instant. Next weekend you can relive the glory days at Arlene’s Grocery, and if you are only planning on showing up once, make it Saturday so you can see Jahn Xavier And The Bowerytones. Jahn was the fifteen year old Voidoids bassist who went on to form the terrific New Wave soul band The Nitecaps. The last time Jahn performed at Arlene’s was six years ago (here), a 90 minute masterpiece, since then he has married and moved to the suburbs so to get Jahn back iun town is reason enough to go.
